The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    There are a lot of great bodyweight exercises. Of course it'll work, but just like anything else, you'll have to mix it up somehow eventually.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Pull ups are one of the best exercise you can do in the gym, the same goes for dips, do them.

    well it wouldn't be that bad to add weights.. ankle weights.. thigh weights, weight vests.. be a little costly though.
    I don't have time. I make time.
